Well, that and the fact this is the SEXIEST bike I've ever seen! And maybe one of THE BEST chassis out there? But in any case, it's official! The Antidote Bikes: 3k Death Project is official!
This will be my most epic of builds...yeah, yeah, I say that on all of them. And it's true. Each one takes the last and makes it...more! So this one won't be the LAST build, but it will be the best, the most jaw-dropping. The bike that pushes me to my limit of creativity and flare...and how a bike handles and rides. The pinnacle of The Death Projects.
It's done. And headed to Pisgah, NC for a shakedown run in about a week! Nov 1, 2020, mark the day! The beast came out epic! And it just feels...special. Just a quick jaunt around the block and you can tell. It rides like a $7,000 bike!
So from being a "next year" project to being done, just like that! And I'm glad I did...stay tuned for more fun with this one!
Hand-laid in Poland! Probably one of the best bike frames ever made?!
As always...smooth and just damn nice!
My first time using one...I'm a 'hardtail guy by nature!
The best TRP has to offer!
Made by Antidote and just as nice as the frame!
I love these on my gravel bike, so why not on my Moutain bike too!? Light and super strong!
